    You can check out any time you like, but you can never leave.

    Edit- Also dude, good for you on getting back into the life part of life. Sometimes it's easy to loose site of that with any hobby/profession.

    Sorry about that, I was editing my post while you were responding to it. :)


    Hey doitlive, try Put This On. They put together a list of suit and sport coat makers to look for.

    By the way, what happened with those 17 Hermes ties you found a while back?

    Thanks. I needed that. I was thinking the same about the Kiton - patch pockets, etc., certainly lend themselves to a SC but I made a few return trips to the same store to look for the pants. Just in case.

    Nice one Xenos. Still can't get over the Lanvin suit.

    Since the bay people were killing it, I got a bit jelly and decided to head out to the Central Coast thrifts.

    What was the consensus on this label again?

    And I remember Frenchy saying something about furniture with those thin legs?

    Don't take the easy way out! You got to suffer for the art of thrifting. [​IMG]
    You know, it took me almost a week to find that post. When I did found it, it was deleted. But then I figured out I had it saved in my temp files all this time. hehehe [​IMG] Thanks for your contributions. I've been updating that list, too. No worries, I won't post it. I got to give credit where credit is due. Respect.
    Damn, homie, you've been hitting it hard. Respect.

    Sometimes I forget this is a "bragging" thread and thinks it's a "hey, look what I got" thread.

    I would kill to live in So Cal for here and there just for the thrift scene.

    You mean this?

    Love it!

    Rule 1 : Is it wearable this decade ?

    Otherwise please feel free to post your outdated items in the Buy and Sell forum. Or you can take a picture of yourself wearing 'homeless man' clothes and post it here.

    On another note...

    Put this shepherd's check aside and save it for any weddings you attend for the rest of your life. It is the 'ne plus ultra' of wedding ties. If you wear it elsewhere and shred it, you'll regret it!
